Medical Waste Disposal Bowling Green

A medical waste disposal company can have many meanings. Are they a true service provider or something much less? Some companies simply sell your information to the ‘highest bidder’ for lack of a better word. Other Medical Waste Disposal Bowling Green Kentuckycompanies will provide a simulation of this service but not provide the service from start to finish. They may haul the waste, or they may hold the contract but have another company haul the waste. Another variation is they may only haul the waste and not destroy the medical waste. In any of these options they need another company to complete the service you hired them to do.

That in and of itself is kind of frustrating, you hire a medical waste disposal company only to figure out they rely on one or more other companies to provide the service.

Imagine you hire a contractor to build your house, you have conversations with them, build a report with them, think they have it all figured out, only to come to realize that they hired a completely different company to provide you with the service. What happened to those conversations, the back and forth? It is like you must start all over and hope you get what you wanted and if you do not, you are stuck with them for some time.

If you hire a company to do a job you expect the company you hired to perform the service from start to finish, most companies do not own their own processing plants to treat your medical waste.

It is on you as the consumer to ask the right questions to find out if the company you hire performs the service from start to finish. By asking the following three basic questions you should be able to get a fairly good idea of the company you are speaking with.

  1. Are the drivers that come to my facility your direct W2 employees?
  2. Do you own the trucks that haul my waste?
  3. Do you own the treatment plants that destroy our medical waste?

At Healthcare Waste Management we directly employ the drivers, we own the trucks and processing plants that treat your waste. We have invested in providing you with quality service at the best possible pricing, in order to do that we understood, we could not relay on any other process or company other than our own.

Bowling Green, KY Medical Waste FAQ and Related Searches

What is Medical Waste?

Medical waste is healthcare trash that contains infectious or potentially infectious items. It can come from hospitals, medical clinics, veterinary offices, dental clinics, research facilities, or medical laboratories. It can contain blood or other bodily fluids, or it can appear benign, like gloves or gowns.

According to the Medical Waste Tracking Act of 1988, it’s defined as any waste created during treatment, testing, immunization, research, or diagnosis of human beings and animals. Examples include sharps like scalpels or needles, tissue, fluids, glassware, swabs, culture dishes, or bandages.

 

What are some Examples of Medical Waste?
  • Expired vaccines
  • Tissue from humans or animals
  • Gowns, gloves, or gauze that may have blood on them
  • Waste from rooms of patients with infectious diseases
  • Needles, scalpels, and broken glass used in procedures
  • Laboratory cultures, stocks, and contaminated culture paraphernalia
  • Bedding from infected animals 
What are the types of medical waste?

The WHO identifies the 8 categories of medical waste as:

  • Infectious waste
  • Sharps waste
  • Pathological waste
  • Chemical waste
  • Cytotoxic waste
  • Pharmaceutical waste
  • Radioactive waste
  • Nonhazardous general waste

Those types cover all the potential varieties and sources of regulated and non-regulated healthcare waste.

Who generates medical waste?

You know hospitals and doctor’s offices create medical waste. But blood banks, dental clinics, and urgent care clinics create it too. Pharmacies, veterinary clinics, medical testing labs, research labs, nursing homes, hotels where patients stay, and funeral homes also create regulated waste.

Even an office building can generate biohazardous waste. Why? Because if someone gets a nosebleed at work and uses a tissue to stop it, they’ve created regulated waste. There was a hotel in Boston, next door to Mass General Hospital, was fined twice for medical waste violations from hotel guests.
